When it comes to the most common skin problems, living green can be difficult when the market is flooded with the same common active ingredients and chemicals. This leaves us stuck in the same cycle of buying and trying all types of products to calm our skin issues without considering what we are really doing to our skin, our largest organ. Natural skin care is necessary to avoid the toxins and animal products in the multitude of products we use. According to the Environmental Working Group only 11% of 10,500 chemical ingredients are tested for safety. Tackle those pesky skin problems with these natural products to give you the glowing skin you deserve.
